A little on the pricy side but first class food, especially the heavenly mud dessert. We got in without booking but it was busy.

Interestingly this restaurant has a one seating service which means that you could easily spend 3 hours over your dinner. Good place if you are planning to have a long leisurely dinner with friends. Broth of mixed mushroom was delicious as was the croquettes of hare ragout. For main course the steak was tender and tasty although the Panfried duck... More

On our recent trip to Amsterdam we ate here twice. The staff are really helpful and welcoming. The ambience is warm and buzzy and the food excellent. It's modern, cooked with flair and fresh ingredients. I particularly enjoyed the fish soup and the fish main courses, though there are meat and vegetarian dishes available.

I came here with a work colleague at the last minute. We chose Hemelse Modder based on TripAdvisor ratings. We were not disappointed. Although very busy on a Wednesday night, we enjoyed excellent service and great food. My sea bass was perfectly prepared and fresh. Their bread is addictive (as are most freshly-baked Dutch breads). We enjoyed an excellent wine... More

This was a wonderful quaint restaurant close to a canal in an older house converted into a restaurant. The food was outstanding -- we went to the restaurant twice while we were in Amsterdam and were amazed at the meals! There was a special each night -- the first night we had the fish special and the second night we... More

Main courses were sea bass and guinea hen. Desserts were three Dutch cheeses with fig preserves and also the house specialty hemelse modder (white and dark chocolate mousse... More

First night in Amsterdam for many a year - this city has really got busy. So make sure you book at Hemelse Modder (means heavenly mud). It's great. Modern Dutch food in a lovely room with very friendly service who cared about what they were doing. The food - mackerel, duck, tarbotine, lovely deserts. The wine - excellent German burgundy....

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
